Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
As you may know I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food.
I have personally seen the effects of T1D from my mother-in-law and cousin. After seeing T1D firsthand it changed my perspective on the topic and drove me to get active in the fight against T1D. I implore you to join me in this fight to help improve the lives of millions of people who have been adversely affected by something they have no control over.
The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease. Type 1 diabetes strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. And more closely to myself it will help my mother-in-law and cousin.
Thank you for your support!
